  • Yet another little charmer (basically)

    Mar 16, 2006 by
    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: Ideal for basic playing of DVDs without the need of a TV.
    Cons: A couple of inconveninet quirks. Supposed to work when on edge, but doesn't.

    Summary: Some months ago I bought a Phillips portable DVD, which I thought was pretty nifty (see my review, h ttp://www.epinions.com/content _211724242564). I still do. Its original purposes were: (1) Its a toy. Im a guy. ... read more

  • Bad quality

    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: Good picture and battery life
    Cons: Freezeups, bad physical quality, poor design

    Summary: Picture locks up all the time requiring a powercycle to unfreeze. Happens on 75% of disks (over 40 tried.) Some disks don't play at all. Makes the unit unusable. Sound levels very very low - even max volume is hard to hear (tried with 8 different ... read more

    Pros: Rotating screen, screen quality, package comes with everything you need.
    Cons: Non-existent skip protection, poor case design, bad location for infrared reader

    Summary: I recently purchased this product as a Christmas present. I explained to two employees at Circuity City that I needed a portable DVD player that would work in the car. Both recommended this product as the one to buy. I will say that the screen is ... read more

  • Same problem - doesn't work in vertical position

    Rated a Helpful Review
    Pros: Big screen, nice audio/video quality, supports all formats. Dual headphone jacks. Car cord incl.
    Cons: Car headrest holster is useless, since unit won't play DVD's in the vertical position.

    Summary: Bought Polaroid PDM-1040 from Ckt City a few days ago. I didn't do my internet research until I got home - big mistake or I might have seen the other review posted here. But I can confirm the problem with playing DVD's in the vertical (i.e. car ... read more

  • Does not load DVD in up right position

    Oct 6, 2005 by
    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: Ease-of-use and nice display size.
    Cons: DVD not getting loaded when unit is in upright position.

    Summary: This 10" DVD player has a really nice design and easy-to-use functions. It works great when the player is laid down flat. However, when I put the player in its car bag and attach it behind a car seat, the player could not load the DVD (waited for 5 ... read more

    Pros: I liked the big screen. Also it played multiple formats.
    Cons: They couldn't even give me the name of a company who might be fix it.

    Summary: I bought this player a little over a year ago. This player died last week. It wouldn't power on by any of the three sources (battery, car adapter, or home adapter). I called customer service and they offered no help whatsoever. They suggested I buy a ... read more
